Republic P-47D Thunderbolt fighter-bomber of the 405th Fighter Squadron, flown by 1st Lt. Robert L. Griffith, at left, with an unidentified NCO, likely the crew chief of the aircraft. The effort to help the Lost Battalion was one of Lt Griffith’s early missions, and he was concerned more about the nasty weather than he was about the enemy.
